When I imagine of India, I think Rajasthan. Crossing the magical golden coloured desert on a camel, looking at the bright Milky Way in the middle of nowhere, and the fort; that’s the image of India I imagined. Like from the movie Aladdin. Even though it was the second biggest city, it felt much more authentic than Jaisalmer, where I went for the camel trekking.
Another name of Jodhpur is the Blue City. Seeing the vivid-blue buildings glowing orange in sunrise was like a scene from an Oriental movie. Two short days in Jodhpur was quite enough to feel the city.
Its the most famous tourist attraction, Mehrangarh Fort, was actually a really cool place with a lot of interesting information. Sometimes it’s hard to find a tourist attraction that is worthwhile time and money, but I highly recommend visiting this fort if you are going to Jodhpur. The fort was a big museum, and the tourist route is well made to see all the exhibits. The highlight of the fort is the view of Jodhpur. It was one of those postcard-perfect moments.
